RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT OF RAPID HYDROGENATION FOR COAL CONVERSION TO SYNTHETIC MOTOR FUELS (RISER CRACKING OF COAL)

A bench-scale experimental reactor has been designed to define the important design parameters in the short residence-time hydrocracking of coal to synthetic motor fuels. The reactor is a 50 foot helical coil of exp 1 / sub 8 -in. Incoloy tubing that will be heated electrically. Coal feed rates will be 5 to 10 lb/hr with residence times of 1 to 10 seconds. The reactor will operate up to 2000 psig at temperatures of 900 to 1500 exp 0 F. An experimental plan has been outlined for Bench-Scale Unit Operations. Work in the first 15 months will concentrate on important parameters that would affect the design of a PDU. In due course, carrier streams other than hydrogen will be explored, such as syngas and steam. A detailed operating procedure for the bench-scale unit is included. (ERA citation 01:025256)
